Using the free Gallery picture
Adding a free Gallery picture to your listing
When buyers browse categories or search for items, they see items with Gallery pictures directly in search results. Your free Gallery picture increases your chances of a successful sale.
Include at least one picture in your listing. The first picture becomes your free Gallery picture. You can also add up to 11 more pictures to your listing for free.

Using self-hosted pictures
Type or paste the web address of your picture into the box provided on the listing form. Supported picture formats are JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP, and TIF.
Note: The recommended size for your source picture is 1,600 pixels or more on the longest side. eBay will automatically resize the source picture to create the different sizes displayed on eBay pages. Source pictures with smaller dimensions can be used, but may result in the resized pictures displaying with lower quality.
Gallery pictures are usually generated within minutes of being submitted, but may take up to several hours at peak times.
